Horoscope for the Week: September 5, 2014

Michael O'Connor's horoscope for the week of September 5

  • Sep. 4, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Tip of the Week:

The September 8th Full Moon is also the Harvest Moon. While not as big as last month’s –‘Supermoon’ is will appear larger than usual. Beyond the romantic or eerie, as the case may be, image of the Full Moon, Astrology celebrates the effects of the Moon related to the flow of emotion people feel. The ‘influence’ of the Moon on nature is a scientific given. It even goes as far as to prove that without the Moon, there would not be life on our planet, at least not life beyond microbes.


Most people will agree that the Moon, especially at Full Moon exerts an influence on human behaviour. The police, fire departments and hospitals will often attest to this. Some people are more sensitive to the influence of the Moon and some less. This fact can be measured in their Astrology Chart. Some people are more ‘lunar’ some more ‘solar’ and some are a balance between the two and so come under the category of ‘soli-lunar’.


Lunar types are the most effected and the influence is quite measurable. Yet, it is a subjective, emotional shift so one has to watch closely which is facilitated by following an Astrology Calendar to observe the subtle shifts unfolding as the Moon travels, changes signs and makes aspects to the Sun and planets. Since the planets are ever in motion as well, no two moments are ever the same, but there are patterns and guidelines one can follow.


I am currently offering both a 1-Day Workshop and a 4-Evening Webinar that teaches you how to read and follow an Astrology Calendar. It provides both a practical tool that stands on its own that helps you to ‘decide when’ is the best time to do certain things such as host events, sign important documents or make expensive purchases or investments. It can also be used to measure the degree to which you are influenced by the Moon. This knowledge also provides a solid foundation for further studies in Astrology. If you are sensitive to the Moon, it can prove to be especially useful and explains and even tells you when you are likely to experience emotional highs and lows. If you are interested in either the Workshop or Webinar, please contact me for details and dates. sunstarastrology@gmail.com


Mar 21 – Apr 20)

The moment of transition has arrived. You have already been negotiating the shift from summer to fall. Even though summer still has two official weeks to go, September has a way of saying, ‘the party is over’. But you remain in play mode in some respects. A deeper and wider scope of creativity is implied. Is it time to weave more arts and culture into your life?


Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

When it comes to fun, you like to get down to business. This is both literally the case but also in terms of cultivating your talents. As the sign of ‘multiple streams of income’, you like to see returns from everything you do. You are extra committed to the future these days and this includes ‘inventions in the garage’ and other such behind the scenes innovations.


Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Your focus is steadily turning to home. This includes creating beauty there. Cleaning and clearing the clutter is the first step. You may notice you feel like going the extra distance to sanitize and uplift the overall state of hygiene. Still, your social agenda remains active and you are glad for that. Cleaning and clearing at home may also inspire you to invite guests over.


Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Some noticeable shifts close to home are affecting your career focus, and the other way around too. You are feeling determined to make a few key moves and investments to expand your lot. Yet you are happy to proceed slowly, to think extra carefully before you act. This includes doing your homework to decipher who is offering the best deal.


Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)

You are feeling the urge to get to work. Financial pressures and ambitions may be provoking your focus. Generally, you have entered an expansive cycle in your life. This implies entering new territory, literally and figuratively. Yet it remains important that you identify what constitutes your strength and power to leverage.


Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have entered a rather dynamic go-ahead cycle. Already negotiations are underway. You may still be in an experimental mode. This includes trying new angles and strategies. Establishing the ground of this new norm may take a while. So, be patient with your expectation on results and continue to build upon new foundations.


Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

Stepping out of the limelight for a while to get things done behind the scenes continues. Demands on your time and invitations to meet and greet will likely continue, so you will have to be diplomatic. For the sake of your overall health, take some time out. This way you will be rested when you need the energy most again…soon.


Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

The time has come for more of your individuality to be revealed. This includes asserting a more independent stance. However, with your assertiveness levels at a peak now you are probably wise to exercise discernment and moderation. Trying too hard to change others and not shifting your own position could back fire, big time. Intend to advance, cooperatively.


Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

Cultivating a healthy lifestyle is an important feature of your destiny. This is directly linked to the importance of right vocation. Purely chasing the money trusting that the happiness will follow may not be a good idea. Stepping back and taking a philosophical perspective, aim for doing something you love or at least like. Above all, make your health a priority.


Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

A busy cycle finds you covering a lot of ground. Meetings, correspondences, errands and a good deal of communicating are likely. You are seeking leads, contacts and facts to strategize your next series of moves. Aims to achieve these through social and cultural activities are likely and ideal. Do the mingle-elbow-rub-hand-shake dance.


Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

Sometimes it is all about what you know; other times it’s about who, and sometimes it is both, like now. Your ambitions are and have been steadily rising. Yet you may be realizing that it is not so ‘warm’ out there, despite the weather. This is where revealing and brushing-up on your skills is implied. As well, be willing to get more training.


Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Things are opening in your relationship life. Family gatherings are likely and ideal. You are in a playful and passionate mood and will enjoy engaging with others. However, there is reason to encourage you to be prudent and not too casual or cavalier. Do bring your heart to matters, yet also be willing to make those extra efforts that will make all the difference.
